Tourism is the second largest industry in the state of Montana, surpassed only by agriculture. People come from all over the country--and all over the world--to enjoy the scenic beauty, adventure, and friendly atmosphere Montana has to offer. In 2010, tourism accounted for over 28,000 Montana jobs directly and indirectly supported by nonresident travel. In 2010 there were 10.5 million visitors to the state and those visitors spent an estimated $2.5 billion in Montana.
